Johansen scored a goal in Saturday's 5-3, Game 5 loss to the Stars, who now lead the Predators 3-2 in the series.

EDGE Analysis

It's his first goal of the postseason and just his second point. Johansen is supposed to be one of the offensive leaders in Nashville, but he's being outscored by fourth-liner Rocco Grimaldi. He needs to ratchet his game up to new heights if there is to be a Game 7.

Johansen buried the game-winning goal Thursday, scoring with 21 seconds left in the third period to beat Vancouver 3-2.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen, despite having scored only 14 goals in 2018-19, has six game-winners, tying him with Viktor Arvidsson for the team lead. His goal Thursday gives him twine ticklers in back-to-back games, and the top-line middle man has now found the scoresheet 64 times in 79 games.

Johansen scored a shorthanded goal in Monday's 1-0 win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen scored his 12th goal of the season with Nashville down a man, beating Devan Dubnyk with a laser beam shot that the Wild netminder had little chance on. It was Johansen's fourth game-winning goal of the season and snapped his goal drought at 19 games. Surprisingly, the Preds' forward is still in search for his first power-play goal of 2018-19.

Johansen notched two assists in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old has a five-game point streak going, although all six of his points during that stretch have been helpers. Johansen's surge has carried him to his fifth career 60-point campaign, and boosted the Preds to within one point of the Jets atop the Central Division standings.

Johansen picked up his 45th assist of the year in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

The helper gives Johansen 56 points in 69 games this year. He has 15 assists on the man advantage. The play-making center has a good chance of earning his fourth 60-point campaign.

Johansen picked up a power-play assist in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

February was a tale of two halves for Johansen, as he rode a six-game point streak early on before going dry in the next six games. Johansen fired five shots on goal but took a minus-3 rating in Friday's contest. With 54 points in 65 games, Johansen has been valuable on the whole in 2018-19, but fantasy owners will hope he's done with extended droughts in this campaign.

Johansen assisted each of his team's goals in a 3-2 defeat to Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

The pivot now has notched at least a point in five consecutive games, for a total of eight over that span. Further, Johansen has been remarkably consistent for the last month, failing to get on the scoresheet in just two of the 13 contests he's suited up for.

Johansen picked up two assists in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

The center now has three goals and 14 points in his last 12 games, and Sunday's helpers got him to the 50-point plateau for the sixth straight season. Johansen continues to flash good chemistry with Viktor Arvidsson, and the duo figures to remain very productive down the stretch as the Preds battle the Jets for the Central Division crown.

Johansen scored his 11th goal of the season in a 3-2 loss to the Blues on Saturday afternoon.

EDGE Analysis

His hot streak continues despite the team loss. Johansen has a modest three-game, four-point (two goals, two assist) scoring run. And he has 17 points, including 12 assists, in his last 16 games. That's a great pace for fantasy owners and the Preds alike. Always have him active.

Johansen potted the game-winning goal in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win against the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Johansen hasn't skipped a beat since returning from a two-game suspension in late January, posting four points in five games since then, and his 46 points in 54 games makes another 70-point season a strong possibility. Johansen continues to thrive on the Preds' top line, flanked by the team's two best snipers -- Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson -- so he should never be on your fantasy bench as long as he's healthy.
